urgent prayer for mercy

July 28, 2014

Hello, my son was addicted to heroin for years, after years of abuse from his father. You have prayed for him when their seemed no hope left. God has raised him up gave him loving men in his life to rebuild trust. Also he has been drug free for over a year has a great job, has paid all child support and and for six months has been paying back bills including student loans. He had an issue awhile ago where his probation officer showed up early and accused him of being late. She called me to complain and I told her I would have him call her, when I called my son his card had her coming an hr after the fact. we save all the info and his boss had given him a ride to our house for the meeting. We tried calling repeatedly and she would not answer our calls. my son got pulled over this weekend for speeding and they said they had a warrent for probation violation. and he is in Jail. I ask you to pray for mercy for him. He is trying so hard. When I talked to him he said He was glad that now this would get resolved so he is taking ownership and I can see the growth. I just don't want him to loose everything he has worked hard for and slip back into that dark place. He is searching for Jesus, thank you.

Caught In The Middle

July 23, 2014

I have a situation that really needs your prayer. My ex and his family no longer get along. It hurts me deeply. I would like to see everyone get along (especially for the sake of my kids). I've tried to "fix" this situation in the past, but that didn't help. I somehow feel responsible that if the divorce never happened, perhaps this wouldn't have happened...if this or if that... Yet, through counseling [logically] I know that I can only control my actions (it's not up to me to control/fix others). I'm still in counseling. Yet, I believe the best counselor is God-Jesus-Holy Spirit. I feel caught in the middle of trying to keep the peace and letting go of things I just can't control any longer, as the anxiety is horrible. Please pray that this family would first of all find God (as some are very turned off right now), that they would forgive and talk to each other, and move in a positive direction. Thank you for each prayer.

Finances

July 23, 2014

We have been struggling for years with finances. We have faithfully tried and tried to climb out of the hole. Once again yesterday we thought we were almost there . . . . we could not only see the light but had one hand on the ledge to pull ourselves up and out, only to be knocked down again. I need strength to keep trying . . . . and faith that somehow we will make it.

In need of strength

July 22, 2014

I have recently been falsely accused of something, and it's causing much stress and negativity in my life. My family and I are just trying to tackle each day one at a time, but it's proving to be very difficult. Please pray that God give us strength and help us through this daunting trial. Thank you all for your prayers.
